Ottawa, ON

Ottawa, ON

Nestled at the junction of three picturesque rivers, Ottawa is one of the world’s most beautiful capitals. The city also borders the province of Québec, creating a dynamic milieu in which both French and English cultures are deeply rooted. The city’s rich ethnic diversity also includes thriving German, Lebanese, Italian, Polish, Dutch, Portuguese and Asian communities. Throughout the year, the many cultural communities celebrate their heritage with colorful festivals and events. The result is a truly cosmopolitan experience. 

The seat of Canada’s federal government, Ottawa is a major center for the visual and performing arts, yet the city still retains the accessibility, atmosphere and charm of a smaller town, and it is rich in open green spaces, parks and wilderness areas. Sightseeing tours and self-guided walking tour information is readily available.
